We believe that it is important to be thoughtful when considering God's Word, the Bible. We hope you will check back from time to time for thoughts on God's Word.
"...there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven." -Revelation 11:13
While John's Revelation has gained an unfair reputation for being all doom and gloom it is important that we always remember God's nature. He is not arbitrarily bringing chaos and disorder upon humanity. His heart is for us! Even the purpose of this calamity is to bring people to Him. Oh, that men would be saved without going through tragedy! But we know that is not always the case. Blessed is the man whose trust in God is from the very beginning, unspotted from the tragedy of human sin. That would be a very rare creature. Most of us exist in the realm of faith stirred by earthquakes.
